Toxicity

Carrie Lynn5 Comments
Last night I was talking to my dear friend/neighbor Liz about my weird tight chest/achy body/feverish body. She told me that it sounded a lot like anxiety.

"Emotion's are tangible... even if you're not aware of them, negative thoughts/feelings are toxic to your body."

I agree with Liz. Here's why:

When she first said "anxiety" I was like "psh! No! I'm not stressed out about ANYTHING."
And then I realized that that wasn't exactly a good sign. It was a sign that I was probably ignoring something.
My house mess was piling up, I'm away from home from 9-5 goinggoinggoing and I have an extremely close relative going through the pains of the beginnings of breast cancer. I haven't had time to sit and FEEL all of my mental/emotional stress, so my body has been releasing it via insane PMS, pain, and now this weird sickness.
Now I knew the core issue of my body break-down and now I could fix it.

So I did some yoga. I'm not a yogi by any means, but I do find simple yoga movements at night and in the morning to be EXTREMELY effective.

I sat in this position for a long time:


And it really helped. I'm feeling better. I mean, I still feel a bit like what I felt yesterday, but an hour of deep breathing and meditation isn't going to get rid of every toxic emotion right?

Anyway, I'm not sure why I'm sharing all this.
Just feeling better, I guess.
